Binary package “xstow” in ubuntu kinetic

Extended replacement of GNU Stow

 XStow (like GNU Stow) is a program for managing the installation of
 software packages, keeping them separate (/usr/local/stow/emacs
 vs. /usr/local/stow/perl, for example) while making them appear
 to be installed in the same place (/usr/local).
 The extended features include: creation of symlinks with absolute
 path names, traversal link support (create a link from
 /usr/share/man to /usr/man), multiple stow directories support,
 shell pattern matching, regular expressions support, and global
 settings via configuration files.
